“It is obviously a great pleasure for me that New World is re-releasing this 1974 recording of my work, and an even greater pleasure that I am able to add to the repertoire. The performance of Times Five and Novara (recorded in Holland) still seem very fine representations of the works and are performed brilliantly by the Dutch musicians. December 1952 as realized by the late, brilliant pianist and composer David Tudor is, in my opinion, the best of many performances he made of this graphic score. I feel this recording to be an extremely authentic and artistically fulfilled representation of these works written between 1952 and 1965 (not all that I wrote during that time, I hasten to add). I hope that future recordings will as successfully represent my work written between 1965 and 2050 as this does the early work.” Brown, January 29, 2000 (from the original liner notes)
